Here in Houston, it's not Christmas without tamales.

And nothing goes better with tamales on a cold night than a warming shot of tequila. So head out to Xuco Xicana on Thursday, December 15, from 6 to 8 p.m. to share both with us as Eating Our Words presents Tequila & Tamales!

Local restaurants such as Sylvia's Enchilada Kitchen, Pico's Mex-Mex, Xuco Xicana and more will be sampling their best tamales and tequila concoctions, and you'll be voting on your favorites. Best of all: It's free, so come celebrate with us and toast the holidays.

As with our hugely successful Wingtoberfest event, free tequila drinks and tamales are limited to the first 200 guests (age 21 and up, of course). Each guest will receive two voting tokens: one for the best tequila concoction and one for the best tamale. The winner will be announced at 8 p.m., so be sure to stick around for the whole enchilada (I could not resist, y'all; I'm sorry).

New restaurants will be added to the list of competitors as December 15 draws closer, so stay tuned to EOW for the latest on Tequila & Tamales. Salud!

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
